    My husband picked up this little girl but doesn't remember what the tag said on the bin at a tractor supply. She's really sweet and tame. She will even perch on our hands when we occasionally hand feed her. Any ideas? We love her the same, but it is driving me crazy. I've searched the internet but can't come to any definite conxlusion.[​IMG]

    Does she seem to be bantam or large-fowl sized? There are several white breeds that she could be: White Rock, White Leghorn, White Old English Game/bantam, etc. We should have a better idea when she is older.

    My best guess is a White Plymouth Rock--looks remarkably like one of mine that I had a few years ago.

    I agree there's too many options to say for sure right now. My guess is also white Rock, but I'd be interested to see pics around 2 months to see how she looks then.

    She's probably a white rock, but does look a little like a white leghorn I had. It's too young to tell.

    She's an Amberlink. I went back to the farm supply and asked what they were selling then. Mystery solved.
